Transcript I he exhibition featured bizarre slides and strobe lights to represent the meaning of life. Photo by Danny Rodosovich. U pon entering the exhibition, students viewed a sprawling monstrosity of black plastic bags, symbolic of a woman's birth canal.Photo by Danny Rodosovich. Invitation To Imagination v ■ ou traveled down your mother's birth canal. In a span of a few short minutes you will have entered the world for the first time, confronted your soul in a series of mirrors, relived the joys and pains of growing up, cleansed yourself in a trough of water and arrived at the ultimate goal of being who you are today. The UH architecture students in Trinh Pham's "Architectural Design" class did a project entitled, "An Invitation To Your Imagination." It was a monostrosity of plastic bags, strobe lights, slides and mirrors. Upon entering the room alone, students were forced to conform to a soft, dark tunnel of black plastic, symbolic of a woman's birth canal, Pham said. The tunnel eventually gave way to a slim hallway with eight foot flashing screens designed to represent "life events," she said. The hallways led into a small area surrounded by mirrors symbolizing the soul meeting itself, which in turn melted in a still larger room of slides which Pham said were designed to show the passions and desires of life. The room then led to a hallway that thins into a impasse that can only be navigated by stepping through a small canal of water symbolizing the end of the journey from childhood to adulthood. -Scott Streater Peter J.
